blogger hiatus

my excuses for not blogging:

+broken camera (oh the horror)

+lack of inspiration

+i discovered pintrest & it consumes all my online time

+and just plain depression.

...maybe i'll come up with something soon

10 years

well we made it. 10 whole years of marriage bliss (10 years and 5 days...i'm a little behind) i can honestly say that we've been happily married this whole time and neither of us see that changing any time soon.

but i will say that as the day approached i realized i was deeply disappointed that we weren't going to be able to do anything to celebrate. i was even more disappointing that at the beginning of this year we had over $1000 saved up and a big trip (just the two of us) planned. but with the way this year turned out that money was long gone before summer even started. it was hard. since having kids we have been away over night ONCE. i was looking forward to alone time with my man. i was excited to celebrate.

i guess i just needed to have a pity party today.

happy [late] anniversary, jakers. i love you. vacation or no vacation.

mixed feelings

i know i need to be there for her
i know i should be nicer about that boy she's dating
i cannot hide my frustration
so she's cutting me out

...seems fair. oh wait, no it doesn't

she wants my honest opinion
it's not going to change
she can't see that he's changed her
the guidelines were breached before they were even set

i hope for the best...but expect the worst.

summer craziness

it seems like every year i think to myself "once summer starts things will calm down" that NEVER happens. it's calm for the first day or two and then the craziness begins. this year it's mainly just solomons activities like; swimming lessons, vbs & art camp. i am so glad that he gets to do all these things it's just a lot of things to coordinate along with moses in tow, jakes new job & me trying to cram a few work days in there too. so my blog will be even fewer and farther between. so all you get for today is a pretty cool picture of solly at swimming lessons (i caught him just as he came down the slide kinda looks like he's just sitting on the water.

oh i suppose i should mention that we also got not one but TWO puppies. little 8 (almost 9) week old girl puppies. yes i have lost my mind. but look at these faces:
carrots & ramona (don't ask)
so thats that. the breece summer in a nut shell.

Par-Tay time.

to celebrate moses' birthday we had a nice big family birthday party. with pretty much just our family we had a whopping 25 people in our tiny house. it was crazy. it was hot. it was perfect.

i had found an idea for a cake that was prefect for moses about 7 months ago and i am happy to say that i think it turned out better than the original. i finished it late the night before the party so in the morning moses was very excited to see it. once he saw it he just wanted to stare at it for along time. it was very cute.
moses just lookin' at his cake:

before the party started i let moses put his toys on the cake:

opening his presents:

one last shot of the cake before it was time to eat it:

"happy birthday deeear mooosseess...":

moses doing his "ta-da" pose:

after everyone left the boys played so well together:
and then we went out to dinner as a family and moses just HAD to bring along his new "suit case" full of his new toys (while wearing his new headlight flashlight) he is such a goof ball!!
in this picture he was noticing in his reflection that i had turned off his headlight and was trying to fix that little problem:

it was a pretty great day. full of all my favorite people celebrating my favorite little moses.

4 years

today my baby turns 4. how is it possible that one day you're holding your sweet new squishy baby and the next day your FOUR year old is telling you that you're "going down to china town, mama"...

moses is proof that God has a sense of humor cause this little boy is created in His image. he had a grumpy start in this world but he has found his joy and knows how to share with others.

if none of these pictures made you smile (or maybe even laugh) then you need help :)

Moses, you will always and forever be MY baby moses, mosey, mojo potato, bubba, baby brudder and MY baby boy. i thank God for you everyday!!

i am lucky enough to have a brother that flies cute little airplanes. after about a year of nagging we finally got a chance to go for a ride with him. this was boy solomon & moses' first times EVER flying!!

solly (hold his flat stanley) & mojo
excited & ready to fly!!

mama & mojo ready for takeoff

uncle andy & solly waiting our turn for takeoff

out house is right about dead center in this picture!

deep lake!!

while i was sweating and ready to hurl moses was just chillin out (while yodeling & singing twinkle twinkle christmas star...what a weirdo!)

turns out (despite the smile) solly was feeling green as well

through the tad bit of motion sickness (no one actually hurled) we had a GREAT time!! we got to fly over our house, solly's school/friends house, grammy's house and our whole town!!

THANK YOU uncle andy for the best day of summer vacation so far!!!

here is a selection of today's drive-by photos. enjoy

*        *         *
today was a bitter sweet day for us. it was jakes last day working for swerve. so i followed him while he dropped off his car and brought him home. this car-in our house is known as the "daddy car" cause that's what it's been for almost 3 years. we're excited and ready for jake to start his new job (with full time hours and benefits!!) but this is what we've known for 3 years so while it's an exciting time it's also a tiny bit scary.

so, here's to swervemobile #22
you were a good 'daddy car' and we will miss you!

jakes b-day

jake's birthday was this past week and since i knew his dad was getting him the only thing he really wanted (a baseball mitt) i decided that his "office" needed a makeover. he just moved into this room and it was looking a bit "bachelor pad-ish" so i fixed that for him. so on saturday while he was working all day the boys and i gave it a little face lift.



no that big of a difference (although, it would be if i showed all the pictures) but he likes it. now if i could just get him to move the rest of his books in there we'd both be happy

*          *          *

after his long day at work we met up with him and his parents and had a good ol family dinner (at the most crowded red robin on the planet) but we had a good time!!!

happy birthday to my hunky hubby!! i love you.

family fun (in the sun)

last week (while the weather was still lovely) moses had his all school picnic up at mud mt. dam. we busted solly out of school and made a family event out of it (plus lucy) it was a pretty fun time!

solomon about to show dad how it's done:

lucy just trying to avoid the sun:

the whole crew:
(minus me. the rest of them are in there somewhere)

solly and lucy (with her cabbage patch face!)

mojo and lu:

we skipped out early (before the hot dogs) and went out for a nice family lunch. it was a good day. i'm hoping for more days like this over the summer

geesh! i've been so busy. so now it's time to catch up on whats been going on in the breece world. in the last week and half if i wasn't at work i was at home with mojo and baby lucy. but i did get to do a few fun
solomon's class put on a mothers day tea it was really fun and the kids put a lot of work into decorations, books, place mats, picture frames & books all for their loving mamas!
solly and his teacher
(we love her!)

then there was mothers day of course. my boys let me sleep in and get this; i slept until 11:20!!!! i DID NOT think that i could even do that anymore. it was wonderful (until i realized at 2am that i still wasn't tired but forced myself to go to bed anyways) they also got me a candle and a whole gift bag full of candy.
they're such good boys!
(this was a few min. after i woke up...i don't always look like that)

sunday we also went to visit my dad (papa) in the hospital he was having some heart problems but i guess everything is fine now because he's back at work.
moses enjoyed papa's view:

moses watching tv with papa:

tuesday moses came home from school looking like this:
(how cute is he?!?!)

and today solomon came home from AWANA with the "EVANGELIST" award for inviting so many friends this year. what a great kid!!

so proud!

it's been a long and busy week but i'm glad to have some fun mashed up in there too!
